Nebraska volleyball player Keonilei Akana will enter her name into the NCAA transfer portal database with plans to find a new school, she announced on social media on Tuesday.
Akana was a key part of the Nebraska defense that helped the Huskers reach the national championship game last season, and also a great server. His 302 digs last season ranked third on the team and his 42 ace serves led the team.
In Nebraska’s spring game Saturday against Kansas, she led the Huskers with 18 digs.
But Akana was a part-time player at Nebraska, and it would be a challenge for her to become the starting Libero after Lexi Rodriguez earned first-team All-America honors last season.
The Huskers are expected to still have defensive specialist Kenzie Knuckles, a former Nebraska starting libero, on the team this season. Knuckles had 245 digs and 35 aces last season.
The Nebraska football team also recruits Akana’s brother. Tausili Akana is considered the No. 31 player in the country in the class of 2023 by 247Sports. Tausili Akana was in Nebraska last weekend to watch the spring game and review the football schedule.
